dreaming of spring.......

"a garden that never died eventually would weary.
robbed of springtime... unacquainted with the extraordinary
perfume that rises from the soil after it's had it's rest...
the garden that winter doesn't visit is a dull place.
the return every spring of earth's first freshness
would never be kept if not for the frosts and rot
and ripe deaths of fall. so when i go out from the
garden for the last time in autumn....
i leave the gate open behind me."
~ michael pollan


looking forward to saying goodbye to
my winter garden....
and dreaming
of spring......
